When more than 16 races have been completed, a boat's series score will be the to-tal of her race scores excluding her two worst score.
When more than 19 races have been completed, a boat's series score will be the to-tal of her race scores excluding her three worst score.
A boat starting in all 4 Big Boat Series Regattas can as a bonus furthermore exclude one worst score.
A boat that came to the starting area but did not start, did not finish, retired after finishing or was disqualified shall be scored points for the finishing place one more than the number of boats that came to the starting area.
A boat that did not come to the starting area shall be scored points for the finishing place one more than the number of boats starting in that regatta.
This is changing RRS A9.
Prizes will be given to best scores in each class and fleet.
